Hello all,

Iam new in this forum.

I have been in Java Ranch since a year,but in SCJP forum. I am overwhelmed by the replies I got for my doubts in that forum and learnt alot for certification and will continue.

Hope I will be benifitted with this forum too.

My question is I want to learn JDBC.I found tutorials on net,but want to know what I have to install in my machine.Iam having Java 1.6 in my machine.

Thank in advance.

If you are starting with the Java database ("Derby") which is provided with the standard JDK, you probably don't need to install anything.
If you use another DBMS, go to its website and see what they tell you. This example for MySQL tells you which connector to download; you would have to download MySQL as well.
